BOTH teams in the Pascoe Cup grand final have handy players that will be watching from the sideline on Sunday.
Dual registered Wanderers players, such as Henwood Park’s Chris McEwan and Junee’s Jonny Mathers appeared more in the State League than the Football Wagga competition, eliminating them from local finals.
“I wish Football Wagga could just get themselves together, let everyone play and have the best final you could possibly have,” Mathers said.
“We’d all be happy with that.
“Obviously common sense doesn’t prevail.”
Junee drew on the talent of Scott Mutimer to fill Mathers’ shoes in the semi finals, who travelled from Newcastle.
There are some Junee players even more eager to win the premiership than Mathers.
“Jason [Mutimer], he’s had his big 400 games, he deserves it for the years he’s done,” Mathers said.
Mathers watched the Wagga United versus Henwood Park semi final.
“Henwood have a few explosive players in Jake Ploenges and Jordan Buik, they’re going to have to keep those guys quiet,” he said.
Junee has some ammunition of their own.
“Marty and Lachie [Bushby] upfront, those two will decide the final, if they're on form I’ll back the guys to win it,” Mathers said.
